“See the city from a classic 2CV !”
Reviewed 15 October 2013 via mobile

Booked the 2CV tour based on the Trip Adviser reviews and very pleased I did.

Booked 2 cars for 4 of us and was picked up outside the tourist information office on time.

The 2 young students driving the cars certainly knew their way around and provided very friendly and amusing stories about the city, it's history & architecture

Many thanks!

“Fab Cab”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

This company does their utmost to make the trip a great experience. We booked a trip but did not specify a time or pick up place, yet they still managed to find us at our hotel and give a super evening tour of the old town (with Champagne thrown in too).

Sundays are best to avoid traffic, although don't expect more than a slight delay should you choose to go at rush hour or on Saturdays.

Ask for Antonin to be your chauffeur for his charm, wit and knowledge (and good looks).

“Perfect way to see Lille, the most fun tour you can do”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

We had a wonderful hour around Lille this past Sunday in the company of our incredibly knowledgeable and charming guide - the perfect way to explore the city, see hidden areas, learn stories both historical and anecdotal, all while relaxing in the back of a cool 2CV that turns heads wherever we went. Pick up from our hotel right on time, all communication was great and the experience was 5* in my book. We opted for a champagne add on which was a lovely finish. We were even gifted the perfect weather too -- thanks guys! I highly recommend the tour as a way to get more insight into Lille - so much was packed in and it made we feel I got a lot more out of the city, as well as being great fun and letting you relax whilst doing it. Highly recommended!!

“Great, fun tour of Lille in a 2CV”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

The only way to see Lille is in a classic 2CV with Tradi'Balade! I really enjoyed the experience and our guide (Antonin) was fun yet very knowledgeable and professional. We finished with a chocolate tasting in a lovely old Chocolaterie. Highly recommended, I would do this tour again.
